C: After a big May for movies, you’d expect June to roar in with even more would-be blockbusters. Surprisingly… there are only a few. But there are also some that we hope will be little gems, and a mishmash of strange films, waiting at the starting gates.
M: It’s funny, you would expect June to be a huge “summer movie” month, but it never seems to be as big as either May or July. Bigger than August, yes, but never as many blockbuster releases. I’m sure there’s a monetary reason for it, but it’s still odd.
E: Whether it was the studios’ intent or not, I’m really looking forward to more than a few of these movies.
Hi all, M here. Just wanted to share a quick thought that I have shared with Mrs M many times over at this point. When it comes to CBS’s new Theo James-Chi McBride police procedural Golden Boy, I have one thing to say…
I CANNOT wait until it fails and is off the air. I don’t care if this make me a bad person, knowing people’s livelihood may be on the line. I don’t care that I literally have not watched one minute of the show, thus have no actual proof it is as horrible as I think it must be. CBS has been shoving this formulaic-looking piece of balderdash down my throat for weeks. At times commercials for it have been in EVERY commercial break for hour long shows, and I just can’t stand it. I want it to be gone, and will be giddy when it is.
*** UPDATE ***
As of last Friday, May 10, 2013, this show has been cancelled. WHEEEEEEEEEEE!
M: We’re getting to the end of the box office doldrums. May officially starts the summer movie season, even if those of us in the northeast are still waiting impatiently for the “early” spring that Punxsutawney Phil promised us well over six weeks ago. With that said, April usually tosses in one or two things to get the ball rolling. I can’t speak for my sisters, but this year there’s one movie I’m really looking forward to, and one that I’m intrigued by against my better judgement. We’ll get to those. Once again, this is not a full and complete list, just the big films, and the small ones that may have piqued one of our interests.
M: A big episode for Wonder Twin #2, aka Ryan, aka some other Irish name that I keep wanting to call Finnick Odair.
E: Oh, because it’s very similar, actually.
M: Exactly. Okay, it was Fenton O’Connell. No, I couldn’t remember that, and yes, I had to search about 15 web sites before finding even one that mentioned it. It was only a pivotal part of the episode, why the heck would other recappers mention that? Continue reading →
